Hi, I just bought a Novatech Ultrabook n1403 today & put Ubuntu 12.04 straight on. I have 2 major problems (which after some google searching I see other people have also had with Novatech. 1 is the trackpad & mouse buttons don't work: at all. I can live without that for the moment though.
Update:OK, here's what I've done - it seems to be working OK, but if anyone reads this and thinks that my system will die, then do please say so...I added the Waldorf repo to my sources.listIn my etc/apt/preferences file, I pinned Jessie at a priority of 1001 and Waldorf at a priority of -10.Hopefully this means that I'm essentially running Debian Jessie, and I can install any Waldo
I think that, with Waldorf pinned much higher than the Debian repos, the Waldorf version of Tint2 doesn't normally get upgraded to the one in Debian. It's only a problem if the Waldorf repo is commented out/removed, which makes its pinning irrelevant.
I am using a memory stick (Verbatim) and have tried Unetbootin and Linux Live USB Creator to install Ubuntu on a Novatech Inspire laptop. I get a screen headed GNU GRUB but when I select Install Ubuntu the screen goes grey and nothing happens. Any suggestions?

Should I resort to re-installing #! now, or are there other things I can do to try and fix this?Is it Waldorf or Statler you use? If it`s Statler you probably would want to upgrade to Waldorf anyway, now that Waldorf is the new stable release.
